The Superior Court Long County is a general jurisdiction trial court. It has exclusive, constitutional authority over felony cases, divorce, equity and cases regarding title to land, and also exclusive jurisdiction over such matters as declaratory judgments, habeas corpus, mandamus, quo warranties, and prohibition. The Superior Court corrects errors made by lower courts by issuing writs of certiorari; for some lower courts, the right to direct review by the Superior Court applies.
The Superior Court Judges of Long County also serve the superior courts of five other counties of Liberty, Bryan, Evans, Tattnall, and McIntosh in the Atlantic Judicial Circuit.
